After planning an entire wedding, the idea of going on a honeymoon with everything taken care of sounds pretty appealing. All-inclusive resorts, which usually include accommodations, activities, food, and alcohol, can take a lot of the hassle out of planning. If the destination happens to be a remote locale in South Asia, even better. With that in mind, we rounded up a list of amazing, honeymoon-worthy all-inclusive hotels in Asia.
For travelers who have never stayed at an all-inclusive resort, keep in mind that the offers vary a bit. Typically, meals, drinks, spa treatments, and some water sports are included, but activities like sailing, jet skiing, and deep sea fishing can cost extra. Review what's included in each all-inclusive package before booking, so you don't get handed a dinner check you didn't expect. Many resorts also offer honeymoon deals that can be wonderfully indulgent, although some newlyweds may not see the need for flourishes like flower-petal baths. So, are you ready to start planning your honeymoon?
1. Constance Moofushi, Maldives
Situated on a small private island in the South Ari Atoll, the Constance Moofushi offers guests a luxurious, away-from-it-all vibe. The resort's rustic-chic villas are sophisticated, artistic, and well-equipped with premium minibars, top-notch entertainment systems, and stunning sea views; some are even directly over the water. For a lazier approach to island life, with fees, guests can check out the spa, which is set on a wooden jetty over the sea. (Couples treatments should be booked ahead of time.) Along with an idyllic beach, a stay here includes non-motorized water sports, including windsurfing, kayaking, self-guided snorkeling, pedal boats, or catamaran cruises. Of course, if you prefer to spend your time staring into the seemingly endless ripples of water outside your door, we don't blame you.
2. Kuramathi Island Resort, Maldives
The 290 guest accommodations at the Kuramathi Island Resort come in quite a few styles, including Beach House, Water Villa, and Honeymoon Pool Villa. Designed for couples celebrating marital bliss, the latter room category is the largest and most luxurious, with a separate bedroom, living room, and dining area. Outside is a walled-in private terrace that holds a large outdoor bathroom with LED shower and jetted bathtub. The highlight, however, is the private plunge pool that is romantically lit at night.
Located on a mile-long island in the remote Rasdhoo Atoll, the property also offers two separate dive centers, a spa, hidden beach areas, and standout snorkeling in the house reef (snorkel gear is free to use). Guests can even arrange motorboat and catamaran tours around the atoll. And when you work up an appetite, a wide range of dining experiences are available, from an Indian restaurant with tandoori and curries to a beachside barbecue joint.
3. Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle, Thailand
While a great number of South Asia's all-inclusive resorts are on the beach, Four Seasons Tented Camp is situated high in the hills of Chiang Saen, overlooking the borders of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar. The remote location is only accessible by boat and the hotel helps plan itineraries depending on the length of your stay. Of course, you won't be roughing it. Each luxury tent is air-conditioned, stocked with Champagne, and outfitted with an outdoor rainfall shower. Activities like elephant rides and educational experiences are also offered, as is a small swimming pool in the forest. To top it off, the resort provides a Couples Connect package, which includes a two-hour spa treatment, private dinner, elephant rides, and wine-and-cheese tasting.
4. Samabe Bali Suites & Villas
Unlike many of the isolated all-inclusive resorts, the beachfront Samabe Bali Suites & Villas is only a short drive from a luxury shopping mall, golf course, and several local temples. The honeymoon suites have a king-size bed, ocean views, and a tub for soaking it all in. The resort also offers guests 24-hour butler service as well as unlimited meals and drinks. Plus, all-inclusive rates cover everything from free daily spa treatments to cultural tours and beachside yoga classes. Couples who want to indulge can order the "Just the Two of Us" package, which includes a stay in a garden view or ocean view pool villa, access to a private cliff gazebo, and a flower-petal bath.
5. Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa, Maldives
Situated on its own private island, this all-inclusive resort is accessible by sea plane and speed boat. The island is surrounded by a beautiful reef, making access to the underwater world as easy as strapping on a mask and fins and walking into one of the island's 10 channels. Rooms are spacious and handsome, with decor that ranges from bright and playful to sober and chic. There are also Water Villas that are suspended over the sea. Popular activities include snorkeling, windsurfing, kayaking, and sailing. And while Vilamendhoo has a lot of family-friendly activities, like a children's game room, the resort also assures that the grown-ups have their own space with dedicated adults-only areas, such as the infinity pool with panoramic ocean views. Honeymooners are welcomed with a flower-decorated room and fruit plate. To up the romance even more, opt for a beachside candlelight dinner, in-room Champagne breakfast, and couples massage.
6. El Nido Resorts Apulit Island, Philippines
Located on a remote beach in northeastern Palawan, this resort can be reached by a 50-minute boat ride from Taytay. Its 50 rooms are housed in stand-alone thatched cottages built on stilts directly over the clear waters. Interiors are simple and in-room amenities are limited, but that only adds to the unplugged feel and tranquil vibe. Thrill-seeking vacationers can rappel down a 200-foot limestone cliff located nearby or go boating into its caves. Kayaking and snorkeling can also be enjoyed. Working to maintain a low carbon footprint, the buffet restaurant serves a menu made with sustainable ingredients, and meals are included in the rate. Couples can also enjoy a massage in a secluded hut or picnics on the beach.
